Introduction
My primary research interests focus on topics of human resources staffing. In particular, my projects address questions related to how organizations make hiring decisions, including the methods organizations use to evaluate job applicants, the types of employees organizations recruit, and how organizational decisions affect who applies to jobs in the first place. I also have a secondary stream of research that explores how stressors such as critical media coverage, emotional demands at work, and negative work events influence employee well-being, resilience, and performance.

Yet, recent research has begun to focus on the outcomes of employees...

Organizations frequently screen or select job applicants based on their work experience. Despite this, surprisingly little is known about the criterion‐related validity of pre‐hire experience, which reflects the amount, duration, or type of experience workers have acquired before they enter a new organization. To address this critical gap in the li...

The extent to which test scores change upon retesting has important implications for both organizations and individuals who apply to those organizations. We review research on retesting and score changes that dates back nearly 100 years. Our findings suggest that compared to initial test scores, retest scores tend to be higher, more varied, and mor...
